What we're about

Mentors Needed! - Our expert volunteer mentors benefit from teaching, as well as hearing and learning alternative approaches from their fellow mentor's views, and the questions asked by the learners (students) during a session.

Let's Learn Modern C++17 Together - it's like a whole new, even better language!

Who should attend? - Are you a solid programmer who wants to expand your horizons to the powerful new features of modern C++?

CppMSG is an approach to learning pioneered in Austin in 2015, find out about it here:

http://CppMSG.com (http://cppmsg.com/)

We discuss deeply technical specifics regarding Modern C++ and how to modernized code up to that standard. Introductory and advanced questions and answers are interleaved with the goal of everyone getting some benefit moment to moment. All questions are treated with respect. All answers/replies/comments and asides are considered, challenged, and supplemented by everyone in the group. We are highly interactive and we sit around a huge table to facilitate quality communication. No one is required to speak, but we hope you will have something to add when you are comfortable doing so. The moderator of the group is very proactive in keeping the discussion understandable, focused, on topic and moving forward, as well as creating space for people to speak and express their technical ideas. We aim for highly productive, highly interactive learning. Generally, Grant is the moderator and Alan is the primary mentor
